What is Fast Financials?
A pre-configured cloud-based financial reporting and budgeting solution built with IBM Planning Analytics software. It combines clear reporting and intuitive analysis of your financial performance data with easy-to-use financial modelling for future planning.
It is ready for you to add your own business structures to suit the way you want to measure the performance of your business – Companies, Cost Centres, Accounts, Customers, Products and Projects.
How long will it take to get up and running?
The solution is designed to be ready for use extremely fast. There will be a little preparation work for you to do – we will guide you how to organise your source data – and when you have done that the system can be ready in a single day.
Can I prepare my own reports?
There are numerous standard reports and dashboards ready out of the box, but you have full access to the IBM reporting tools to build your own bespoke reports. Reports can be using the IBM Planning Analytics Excel interface or the Planning Analytics Workspace dashboard tool.
How customisable is it?
The solution has been built to a standard model. We know it won’t exactly fit every business, but it means we have fast-tracked the many days of services that would otherwise be required to build a model with the base software.
We recommend you start with the standard model first, but if required, we can fully customise the model to fit your exact requirements.
What training is required?
We will train your team on how to use the system – how to load data and structures and how to use reports. The system is very intuitive, but we can also provide additional training for report writing.
What Support is available?
Aramar runs a dedicated support desk available via telephone, email or our web-based support portal. Support is based on a token system – a token equals one call or one hour of support work.
